Madison needs safe transport

Donation protected
Our beautiful daughter Madison has a rare condition called West Syndrome. Madison is 7, yet developmentally she is at new born baby stage. She has severe developmental delays, she can not talk, is unable to sit unsupported and cannot walk. Madison is unable to eat or drink, having all of her nutrition through a mic-key button (a feeding port into her tummy).
Madison is growing quickly and becoming a very big girl. As she is out growing our wheelchair accessible car, it is no longer safe for her and we are needing to to purchase a car that is suitable and safe for her.
To purchase a new van, with wheelchair access, we are looking at $80,000.00, which is extremely expensive and way out of our reach. I have been doing a lot of research and have found second hand, modified vehicles for around $50,000.00. This is still extremely expensive and also out of our reach, but unfortunately is something that we need to have for Madison and us as a family for our everyday life.
It is unbelievably hard for me to do this, as I hate asking for help, but the time has come that for Madison and our little family, I need to ask.
So a massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any help you can give us.
